Blade Song by J.C. Daniels

Kit Colbana — half breed, assassin, thief, jack of all trades — has a new job: track down the missing ward of one of the local alpha shapeshifters. It should be a piece of cake.

So why is she so nervous? It probably has something to do with the insanity that happens when you deal with shifters — especially sexy ones who come bearing promises of easy jobs and easier money.

Or maybe it's all the other missing kids that Kit discovers while working the case, or the way her gut keeps screaming she’s gotten in over her head. Or maybe it's because if she fails — she's dead.

If she can stay just one step ahead, she should be okay. Maybe she'll even live long to collect her fee ...

Release Date 1st August 2012

I loved, loved, loved this book. It's been a long time since I've read a book by a new (to me) author that had me not wanting to put it down. I was literally walking around my flat reading my kindle because I didn't want to even put it down for the short trip from one room to another - and it's very short, I live in a tiny flat.

Kit gets hired by the cat alpha to find her runaway nephew - she seems to know Kit's soft spot is kids. Unfortunately (for her, not for us) she has to take along Damon, the Alpha's enforcer. They discover other kids from other races have gone missing and Kit comes to realise they are being rounded up and hunted. So there's a fallout and a confrontation when she realises who is behind it.

The sexual tension between Damon and Kit killed me from the very beginning, I just wanted them to get to it already but the teasing and play was extremely well written and, as much as I wanted them to get down the nitty-gritty, I really enjoyed the lead up. J.C. Daniels is a pen name for Shiloh Walker who I have heard of but never read, based on this book I think I shall give her alter ego a quick peruse to see if she has the same writing style.

Highly recommend this book, really can't wait to read the next one.
